Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Volkswagen Golf Owner Comments

problem #1

May 172008

Golf GTI 4 cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 70,000 miles


This car has always had a musty odor which got worse. My wife began having mold allergy problems, and uses two inhalers. Noone ever figured out the problem which was that the drains for the sunroof were never connected. Water would collect under the carpet, and become much so that I had to change clothes when coming in the house, or my wife would get sick. Today, my stepson and I tore the car apart and found incredible mold under the carpet, which was sopping wet. I have had the car to a VW dealer I can't count how many time, to no avail. I dont yet know if I will get rid of the smell, which is acrid and in all the upholstery. I had the interior professionally cleaned 3 times before I found the problem. After speaking to others who have the same problem, it appears VW ignores them. Maybe now my wife will get rid of the mystery illness we fought for so long.
